Georgia Takes SEC Championship

UNDATED (AP) _ Georgia completed a wire-to-wire win in the
Southeastern Conference women's golf tournament in West Point,
Mississippi, but the top-ranked men's team finished a disappointing
sixth in the league tourney at St. Simons Island.
The women claimed their first S-E-C title since 2001 and
eleventh overall, more than any other school. Sophomore Taylor Leon
led the way, taking the individual title with a five-under 67 in
the final round.
Overall, the Bulldogs played the Old Waverly Golf Club at
one-over 865, 16 strokes ahead of runner-up Florida.
Leon's 54-hole tally of eight-under 208 gave her a four-shot
edge over teammate Garrett Phillips and Marci Turner of Tennessee,
who tied for second, but came up one stroke shy of the S-E-C
championship record.
The men finished 14 strokes behind S-E-C champion Tennessee,
which took the title on the Seaside Course at St. Simons with a
29-over 869.
The Bulldogs shot a six-over 286 in the final round on the
par-70, six-thousand-991-yard layout to finish at 883 for the
tournament. Chris Kirk, Adam Mitchell and Hudson Swafford all
closed with 71s.
Brendan Todd put up the Bulldogs' top individual score, a
nine-over 219, to finish ninth overall, eight shots behind medalist
Patton Kizzire of Auburn.
